Update! Fantastic Job on this pack

So I went out to several stores and tried on several different packs in the 100- 200 dollar range. This one was about 75 in the stores so I thought what the heck let’s try it on and give it shot. It fit me well and overall was very comfortable. I am fairly short by guy standards; 5’6 160. So I hoped on Amazon and saw it was just about 50 bucks. Well like most, I was expecting some of the problems I have read about here. However, I have yet to have any of them. Since buying this, I have hiked Mt Washington in NH, Mt Davis in Pa, and Back Bone Mountain in. I have also taken this pack on multiple climbing excursions. I must say this things has held up amazingly. I have had zero problems with it thus far. For my local climbing trips, it has handled my full climbing gear (200 ft rope, harness, helmet, carabiner, belay, etc…) plus food water etc for the day. For my hike up Mount Washington, which anyone who has done that knows how crazy it can get, it performed very well… I ended up having to use the handy dandy waterproof “sheath” that came with the pack. It has endured some serious abuse and keeps on taking it. I would recommend this pack to anyone at this point. As to the pack itself, it has tons of little features. It has locking mechanisms on the lumbar straps, 2 outside pockets that are literally the perfect size for a Nalgene, It has a pocket on the top for random things (I used it for flint and my back up plan of 9V battery and steel wool), At the bottom it has a place for your sleeping bag. All in all a fantastic pack for the price, until I wear this one out I do not anticipate needing another one. Well at least not until I learn how to ice climb and knock out Mt Rainier!
Decent pack for mid-entry level hiking

this pack is overall a good quality pack. It has tons of pockets and loops to hook many things on. I have walkies, knives, shoes and much more dangling from mine.
Great affordable pack

I will qualify this review by saying that I am not an expert backpacker. I got this pack for a three-day trip in the Smoky Mountains. We started out the trip on a rainy day. The built in rain cover worked really well, although it was not big enough to cover the pack AND a sleeping pad I had attached to the outside of the pack. As a result, my sleeping bag, which was at the bottom of my pack, the region left partially exposed, did get a little damp. It actually didn’t get as wet as I’d expected, though … it was pouring that first day. Had I been a bit more experienced a backpacker, I would have put my sleeping bag in a waterproof bag. All this to say that the rain cover works well for the bag, but won’t necessarily accommodate extra things attached to the outside.
This Pack is amazing. It’s low-priced, high quality and a perfect size.

So far, I have taken this thing on a week long trip through India, where it was strapped to the back of a motorcycle as I rode through the himalayas (I’m not kidding here). It held up great and the rainfly was very useful and easy to put over it when it poured on us. The pack endured heavy strain as it was packed to the brim and strapped down hard every day and came out without a scratch (I was surprised about that).
Great bang for the buck

This is a great bag for the price. And best of all (which I did not know at the time of buying) is that it meets the carry-on size limits for flying. Fits enough clothes and materials for a 2 week trip with no problem at all.

Plenty of room. Able to fit a three litter hydro pack. It’s comfortable easy to put on.
I am a female that is 5’5 and 120lbs and it fits nicely.

Although it is a little hard to adjust for a comfortability (I’ll get used to it with practice), it is a solid backpack. I’m taking it on an overnight trip. I’d say if you were going on more than a 2-day trip than to get a larger sized bag. I was able to fit the “Teton Trailhead +20” mummy sleeping bag in the sleeping bag compartment with the sack it came with. I fit a 6ftx5ft tent in the main compartment. A jacket, some food, first aid kit, and I was even able to fit more, but I’ll practice with adding on more weight on later.
PERFECT FOR SCOUTING

My son has 11 yrs. This backpack has many features and he’s going to use it for Scouting. It fits just perfect! We have the day pack and the backpack and we’re just really satisfied with both of them. The day pack brought the 2 litters bladder and the backpack doesn’t, but we still have the one of the day pack so we can just switch it. We try many different brands, but we didn’t like the fabric or either the price (in Puerto Rico you can find similar ones in $140 to $250) So this absolutely was the perfect option, we’re pleased with this brand and with the seller! If you have a Scout and need a day pack or backpack TETON IS THE ONE WITHOUT REGRETS! We love our TETONS BACKPACKS!
Beginner backpacker and loved it

Bought this for a 3-day backpacking trip in spring. Very durable, arrived on time and held everything I needed it to… Including a not-so-small 3 person Ozark tent. Nice compartment on the bottom for a sleeping bag (I purchased a Teton mummy bag of the same color). Fit me well, I’m 5’5″ and was comfortable (if adjusted and worn correctly). In short it was a good bag and a great price. I liked all the side pockets and mesh pouches.
Lack of measurements
38 people found this helpful.
First of all, I think this is a good pack–very sturdy and I’m sure it would perform well. My problem with it is that it didn’t include measurements of what height or back length it would fit. Only the tag mentions the measurements (max height is 5’9″), and the tag is on the actual pack, not in the product information, so that was disappointing. I had hoped the tag was wrong, but it was a little on the uncomfortable side for me, and that was when it was empty. I’m 6 feet tall btw. My only other complaint is the sleeping bag compartment–it’s just too small for my needs, but that works out because I can always put my bag in the pack and put other items I need to get to quickly in the “sleeping bag” compartment. And please don’t forget that you shouldn’t order this if you are taller than 5’9″, otherwise it won’t work out.
